Iraq has concluded to prosecute 150 members and leaders of the anti-Iran banned opposition group Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO).
The Public Prosecutor of the Iraqi High Tribunal, Jaafar al-Mousawi, stated that investigations revealed Tuesday that MKO members have played a leading role in the killings of Iraqi civilians.
Mousawi further commented that the terrorist group had supported Saddam Hussein’s Baath regime, aiding in the suppression of the Iraqi people’s uprising in 1991 and the torture and massacre of innocent people in the northern and southern regions of the country.
According to Mehr news agency, the prosecutor stressed the tribunal’s attempts to bring leaders of the banned group Massoud Rajavi and Maryam Rajavi to justice, adding the Iraqi government has taken steps to even obtain the extradition of MKO criminals whom are abroad.
Al-Mousawi’s remarks came as the US had given asylum to the banned coalition in Iraq and provided training to MKO terrorists.
The terrorist group has carried out countless violent actions against the Iranian people including the assassination of a president, a prime minister, 80 parliamentarians as well as thousands of defenseless Iranian civilians.
The MKO was in alliance with Saddam during the Baath regime and stationed headquarters on Iraqi soil to launch attacks on Iran.
